Abstract Digital platforms and associated ecosystems provide a promising new environment for entrepreneurship. While the benefits to entrepreneurs (and new ventures) associated with membership in these ecosystems are well understood (e.g., market access), the associated costs or “downsides” are yet to be studied. Digital ecosystems require entrepreneurs to simultaneously fill two roles: ecosystem member and new venture leader. Often, these roles are incompatible, thus generating role conflict an...

Abstract Entrepreneurs often need external resources to found their new ventures. These can be obtained from many sources, but government sponsored programs are an important and often desirable one because they do not require repayment of the funds provided. Resources from such programs should, in principle, be equally available to all entrepreneurs, but in fact, some entrepreneurs—ones often described as underdogs – have restricted access to them. This disadvantage stems, in part, from personal...

Previous studies suggest that entrepreneurs play a key role in the success of their ventures. But relatively little is currently known about how they produce such effects. The present research provides data suggesting that two modes of entrepeneurs’ self-regulation—locomotion and assessment—enhance a firm's success through their effects on the components of alertness. This mediational model was tested and supported with data from 120 entrepreneurs. Locomotion was positively related to the scanni...
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explain why (based on an extensive body of research findings) efforts to reduce income inequality may have negative effects on motivation and the desire to excel. Design/methodology/approach This paper presents the author’s personal perspective on income inequality and efforts to reduce it.

Academic and popular discussions of social entrepreneurship often point to the importance of social value creation in contributing to a social venture's success. Implied in these discussions is the assumption that the more pressing the social problem addressed by the mission or the greater the social value generated, the more successful and attractive the venture will be. The present theoretical framework uses social cognition theory to examine the link between dimensions of the social mission a...
